Russell Brand is in Dublin. He's in town to film new children's movie 'Four Kids and It'.
Based on the novel by Jacqueline Wilson, the film tells the story of a group of kids on holiday in Cornwall who meet a magical creature on the beach with the power to grant wishes. Wilson's book in turn was inspired by E. Nesbit's 1902 novel 'Five Children and It'
Brand took to Twitter this morning to announce his arrival, posting a picture with fellow comedian Steve Coogan with the caption: "Me and Steve Coogan on a Stena Line to Dublin. They gave us free dinner and access to limitless corridors. What a Trip. Just needed Rob Brydon #titanicplus".

Four Kids And It also stars Paula Patton and Matthew Goode. Michael Caine will voice the character of It.
Brand will play the "oddball villian" Tristain, who sets out to capture It.
Earlier this week, it was revealed that Cheryl will make a cameo in the film. The singer and former X factor judge jetted into Dublin Airport on Monday to begin shooting.
A release date for 'Four Kids and It' has yet to be confirmed.
